John is gobsmacked by Elly's insistence on piling work on herself despite having an excuse to slack off.

(Strip Publication Date, 2 November 1990)

Panel 1: Shortly after Elly's soppy homage to the prettiness of nature, John makes the scene and tells her that she shouldn't be working hard in her condition so she should let him do the raking.

Is he a condescending twit? Yep! Is he too stupid, gutless and lazy to question the stuff he was fed growing up because it works for him? Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full, sir! Does it cross his mind that it probably don't work for anyone else? Neeeeeewwwwp!

Panel 2: She goes back inside. John probably thinks that this means sitting on the couch eating bonbons because that's what housewives 'really' do all day because men who never got married and nen who flee housework can't be off base, can they?

Panel 3: Since John thinks that getting to actually learn the people he lives with are is a cruel and evil thing because it requires effort, curiosity, self-examination and other things that are of Satan, he is shocked to see her struggling with the laundry.

Summary: Since John is John, he thinks that the kids will pick up the slack with the housework because they have to work off their debt to their victim parents somehow.
